Hi! Great to see you again dear viewer. Today we’ll see
some conversations about leaving a message for someone. Feel free to practice the lines by pausing the
lesson and repeating the dialogue anywhere you want! So shall we get it started? Hello? Hi! Is Heather there? May I know who’s speaking? This is Eric Martin. Heather’s not here right now. Do you know when she’ll be back? She went to the store to buy some groceries.
She might be back in another 20 minutes. Would you like to leave a message? Yes, would you please tell her Eric Martin called? Sure. I’ll tell her you called once she’s back. OK. Thanks. Hi! Can I speak to Mr. John Cain? I’m sorry. He just left for a meeting. Is it something urgent? Well, I just need to ask him something about the printing
job he gave us. Could you take a message for him? Yeah, sure! Okay, just let him know that the design hasn’t arrived yet, and
we can’t keep the schedule if it doesn’t reach us within 2 hours. Alright, I will tell him that. Hi! May I speak with Mr. Martin? Mr. Martin is not at home. May I know who’s call? It’s Laura Pattinson. When can I talk to him? I’m not sure when he’ll be back. Do you want to leave a message? Yes, please. Could you remind him about tomorrow’s Association
party? It’s important for him to be there on time. Alright. I’ll let him know. Hey! Why weren’t you there at the party? What party? I left a message with your wife asking you to be
there at the Association’s party. Didn’t you get it? Ooops. She always pens down the messages for the calls
I get in the day. I forgot to read yesterday’s. Fantastic! You just missed one of
the most important business events! Never mind! There’ll be many other opportunities. Food, fruits or other things you eat that you
can buy from a grocery store or a supermarket. Pen down is to write down.
Sometimes people also say jot down. An association is a group of people who’ve
come together for some common goal. Opportunities are happenings or incidents which you can
benefit from in some way if you take the right action. Thank you for watching this lesson. We’ll be back with
a new one tomorrow. Do come back and check it out! See ya!
